Remember the 2019 Charity Auction?
The 2019 NYSLTA Charity Auction raised $37,140.00 to benefit Fordham Bedford Community Services. The goal was to raise money to renovate the Teen Study Room in the Community Center (converted convent) used for underserved teens in the organization’s college prep classes. Having a quiet safe place to study and collaborate is critical to their success. We were recently notified that the construction of the room was complete and awaiting furniture! Thank you to all who supported this event.

Thanks to the efforts of over 45 member companies, as well as families and friends of members, NYSLTA granted gift wishes for 690 children this holiday season. Members expressed their gratitude that we continue to work with the Salvation Army to help make the holidays a little brighter for these children.
Throughout the 4-year period that that the Charitable Works Committee has been running the drive, members have provided gifts for over 2400 children.
